MetadataShow full item record
Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano yesterday lashed out at Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano for claiming President Duterte had ordered the military to cease patrols in the West Philippine Sea. Cayetano said Alejano had been peddling lies and could have been a victim of a bum steer. "Congressman Alejano was claiming the President had ordered a halt on all patrols in the South China Sea. This is a blatant lie," Cayetano told reporters.
